The Rock Creek Trail connects the visitor center with the sled dog kennels. If you are hiking from the visitor center to the kennels for a sled dog demonstration, be sure to leave about two hours before the program is scheduled to begin. Highlights of the trail include ridge-line views of nearby Mount Healy. This trail is not a loop by itself, though a loop can be made by hiking it and the Roadside Trail.
The eastern trail head is accessible from the Denali Visitor Center or Murie Science and Learning Center, via the Taiga Trail. The western trail head is accessible from the Denali Headquarters and the Sled Dog Kennels.
